    perfect reflections :)

  • Hehee, thank you :-)
    They were SO much fun, but I got quite soaked in the process – worth it though :-)

    Oh I love the great lateral thinking in capturing the reflections here – the muted pastels are perfectly suited to the day and the weather. Great work.

  • John, thank you so much – appreciative of encouraging comments from co-Melburnian, who understands how dreary this state can be at times, especially in the depths of Winter ;-)
    Oh sorry, 1st day of Spring! But who would know! Winter weather, as usual ;-)
